  2. KISS ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IM IRISH!!!!!!!! WOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yes we kno how ta drink… least we aint dry shites!!!!!

  3. Stumbled across this whilst surfing, and thought I would weigh in.

    Well, I do think so. I am Irish-American; my grandparents immigrated from Dublin in the 1920s. And before I get started — YES, I am aware that I am not “truly” Irish in the minds of many people who actually live on the island, but sod off, IMHO.

    EVERYONE — and I do mean EVERYONE — on that side of the family either really likes to drink, or wishes they still could drink, but have to abstain (alcoholism.) My late Nana (God rest her soul) drank a Guinness, followed by a “short, fat, neat” shot of Jameson’s every night before bed. (When I am in the mood for a shot — that’s exactly how I order it. Good bartenders get it right.) She also smoked like a chimney — unfiltered Marlboro Reds, which are as thick as roofing tar. She died at age 85 — a long life punctuated by revolution; immigration; two World Wars; quite a bit of deprviation; five kids; 20 grandkids and much drinking.

  4. Im Irish, from the rebel county =]~and honestly i admit that we drink an awfull lot! I think we handle our drink better than people from others countries, obv there are exceptions lik but still! I personnaly hate whisky and guinness but i’d drink anything else for ya lik.
